Don’t forget that the Cd stress increase for impact loads is 2.0 for wood. Accounting for that, I think Live Load deflection would likely be the biggest problem for a wood floor in this use.
When the gov. drops that weight and feels the floor bounce 4”, he might think twice about doing it again.
What is your general gut feeling for designing a wood floor to support a “Weight Room”? I’m assuming at least some free weights.
The proposed floor system will be a rubber mat over 2 layers of ¾” plywood (edges staggered) over 24” deep wood floor trusses.
I’m picturing some wanna-be governor pressing a 200# bar over his head then letting it free-fall 7.5’+.
